You may have seen that we here at Salty Popcorn are a little excited for the release of PATRICK on October 17th. If you missed the trailer, which we already have on the site HERE, then clickety click and have a suss – it looks damn creepy. Can’t wait for it.

PATRICK is a modern re-working of the 1978 classic cult film of the same name. It is a visceral, dramatic thriller, centred on a young nurse who becomes the obsession of a comatose patient with telekinetic powers. The film is directed by Mark Hartley and stars Sharni Vinson (Home and Away, Bait 3D), Peta Sergeant (Winners and Losers, Satisfaction), Rachel Griffiths (Muriel’s Wedding, Brothers and Sisters) and legendary actor Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, Alien 3).
